First and foremost, we would like to thank the fine folks down in Kankakee for all of their hospitality, especially that BIG spread Jess... that was absolutely perfect and dare I say, the bar has been raised...
In the very first championship game, it was the number 1 Cardinals taken on the number 2 Jets (widgets). To get things started, the Jets controlled the ball the entire first quarter, but was unable to make it into the endzone. They turned the ball over to the Cardinals on the 5 yard line. The Cardinals only needed two plays to score in which Tyian Miller dashed down the field for 95 yards for one of his three scores. Mr. Miller finished the contest with over 165 yards rushing, 3 touchdowns and a game scoring touchdown right before halftime.
In the first game (widget), number 2 Country Club
Hills took on number 1 Richton Park. This was a low scoring game, the
opposite of week fives matchup, where the Raiders won 21-0. The Raiders got
the only touchdown score on the afternoon with a short power run by Antonio
Jones in the second quarter (6-0). The Cougars stopped the Raiders several
times from scoring in the game, but the Raiders capitalized by preventing
the Cougars from the redzone.
In the second game (Raiders vs Patriots), the first half came and went with no one scoring. Both teams battled back and forth for position but defense held strong. In the second half, the Raiders got on the board first with a 47 yard sprint by Joseph Peters (6-0). the Raiders scored again in the fourth making it 12-0. The Patriots were going down without a fight, and took advantage of field position and scored on a screen pass by Justin Hall with 3:02 left in the fourth. Unfortunately, Markham was not able to score again in the game.
The Cougars came into this game undefeated and out to proved that they belong. So, they took the opening kickoff 81 yards to the house. Kevin White dashed through the Riverside defenders making the score 6-0. The Cougars struck again to start the second quarter making the score now 12-0. A few plays later they intercepted a pass and return it for a score (20-0). To compound the situation, Country Club Hills scored once more right before halftime on a short run. So, at the half it was 26-0. The score remained this way until the fourth quarter when the Cougars executed a 36 yard pass for another score (34-0). The Colts were able to get on the board with a power run for 50 yards with 4:30 left, but they were not able to score again.
In the final game of the championship weekend, it put number 3 Raiders up against the number 1 Colts. In the previous matchup, it was a low-scoring contest with the Colts squeaking by 12-7 (week 4). Has anything changed since then?
Well, the Colts opened up their playbook with an opening double-reverse in which Dyrrah Christon took the ball 45 yards fro the first score (6-0). The Raiders answered less than one minute later with a wonderful run by Davonte Drakes (6-6). Both teams at this point settled down and held each other between the twenties on the field.
Colts did pound the ball in right before halftime on a run by Mr. Christon (14-6).
Then in the second half the Colts turned it on with two additional scores and zero for Richton Park. The first score came on a big run by Mr. Christon who setup a 2 yard touchdown run by Joseph Jordan (20-6). The next score came on an interception which was return for a score (28-6).
The Colts sealed the game with an interception.
